Draftkings picks and predictions for tomorrow night's Wings vs. Storm matchup.

Dallas Wings vs. Seattle Storm
June 29, 2024 9:00 pm EDT

The WNBA presents a matchup between the Dallas Wings and the Seattle Storm. Let’s take a look at this game from a Draftkings perspective.

Before we dive into the Indiana Fever vs. Seattle Storm game let’s review the rules for Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Draftkings Single Game Showdown Contest Rules

You have $50,000 to utilize on five players from either team. However, one of those players will be designated as your team captain. The captain accumulates 1.5 times the standard fantasy points. Additionally, the captain is 1.5 times the standard cost of the flex position.

The remaining four players in your lineup will receive the standard fantasy points. Having stated that, it is highly important for you to identify the correct player for your captain position if you hope to win a large field DFS GPP (guaranteed prize pool) showdown contest.

If you have additional questions regarding the rules for the single game showdown contest, I recommend that you check out the Draftkings website for more details.

*I recommend that all readers review the starting lineups for both teams prior to setting your DFS lineup for this one game slate

Here are my Draftkings picks for tomorrow evening’s Dallas Wings vs. Seattle Storm matchup.

Draftkings Picks

Captain-Ezi Magbegor, Forward, Seattle Storm $9,000

How important has Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor been to the Seattle Storm offense this season? Let’s take a look at Magbegor’s recent game statistics to answer that question.

In the 15 games that forward Ezi Magbegor has played for the Seattle Storm in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Magbegor has averaged a robust 13.5 points, 9.1 rebounds, 2.5 assists, 2.4 blocks, and 1.6 steals a game.

It is noteworthy that these two teams faced off five days ago in Dallas. In that matchup, Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor played rather well. Let me be more specific. In the Seattle Storm’s 92-84 win over the Dallas Wings just mentioned, Seattle forward Ezi Magbegor accumulated a whopping 10 points, 10 rebounds, 3 assists, 4 steals and 2 blocks.

I also like Ezi Magbegor’s matchup in this game. Magbegor draws a Dallas Wings team that has struggled on the defensive side of the basketball all season. Through 16 games played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, the Dallas Wings are currently ranked a dreadful 11th in total team defensive rating (106.4), tenth in total opponent second chance points allowed a game (12.5), and 12th in total points allowed in the paint a game (39.5). Clearly, the data just presented tells us that the Dallas Wings are not a good defensive team.

For the reasons just noted, I am rolling with talented Seattle Storm forward Ezi Magbegor as my captain for this one game WNBA DFS slate.

Flex Plays

Jewell Loyd, Guard, Seattle Storm $9,600

Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd is certainly showing the world why she is one of the best guards in the WNBA this season. Let’s take a quick look at Lloyd’s recent game data to better shed light on my previous statement.

In the 15 games that the Seattle Storm have played in the 2024 WNBA regular season, Seattle Storm guard Jewell Loyd averaged an impressive 34.7 Draftkings points a game. It has to be said, those are the type of fantasy numbers I am looking for from a player I select as a flex play for a Draftkings single game showdown contest.

Additional players I like (Draftkings price noted): Skylar Diggins-Smith, Guard (Seattle Storm) $8,600: Natsaha Howard, Forward (Dallas Wings) $8,000: Jacy Sheldon, Guard (Dallas Wings) $5,200: Sami Whitcomb, Guard (Seattle Storm) $4,400.
